Release Boxee Inspirat Skin
#32
newbra Wrote:Excellent, looking forward to this myself. Love the weather icon which is exactly how and where I wanted to implement it but didn't for lack of proper icons.

I cheated a little when it came to the weather icons. I grabbed them from the Boxee skin. Down the line, I'll probably go about creating a set from scratch though to keep things kosher.

newbra Wrote:2 row Poster view with larger thumbs is great too, I thought my initial 3 rows were a little crammed almost like a wall view. Also like that you made the info overlay optional as i think it isn't necessarily needed depending on how one navigates. I for example have the remote set to "show information" on select, which is why i tend to prefer full width posters without info.

Thanks, that was one of the first things I modded. With the 3 rows there was just too many covers on screen at one time to really focus on anything in particular.

I wanted to do the same thing with the list view but came across too many issues when it came to navigating the rest of the menus outside of the video library (addon dialog, file dialog, etc). The file menu was a particular pain in the ass. Things would look fine without the details in until I entered the movie / tv show library and then things would 'stick' until I reset the Show Details setting.

newbra Wrote:Couple of notes:
Replacing feed-thumb area on homescreen. My suggestion would be to implement this in a way that it does replace based on the main menu selection, So that on-hover "movies" it would exchange video feed for recently added movies, same with TV etc. Remaining menu items that don't have obvious sub-content can revert back to the feed.

That's definitely a better idea. I have another idea for the favorite addons menu in mind so I'll use your idea of adding the recently added / watchlist addon.

newbra Wrote:One small thing that I think does not work so well is using the selection rectangle_off (grey) on non-selected thumbs. I temporarily had this myself during development and wasn't convinced by the look. Something you may want to look check as alternative is to replace it with a "diffusemask" in the thumb props. I already have some PNG masks in skin/media/ which are meant to round off the corners of the non-selected thumbs.

I thought so too but it's kind of grown on me. I went ahead and created some image mask individually for each view. The one thing I think could be added further in the skinning engine is to allow borders for the diffuse image. Without the borders the curved corners tend to stretch.

newbra Wrote:You should be able to pretty much copy/paste a lot from DialogVideoInfo.xml.
In fact I had a FullscreenVideoInfo.xml at one point... But then streamlined it and decided to copy/paste it into VideoOSD and just make it a on-hover button instead of having to click it.

I completely overhauled the DialogVideoInfo.xml but you're right and I'll probably end up using the new version for the FullscreenVideoInfo.xml.

newbra Wrote:Also: Uploaded all source PSD's if it helps adding and editing icons etc.

Thank you very much for that. It'll come in handy along the way. I hope I'm not stepping on too many toes with this mod. Blush

Now on to some more screens:
